Year 3



3A - Louise Lawrence

3B - Mandy Ashe

3C -Jacqueline Fuchs


Welcome back to school for Term 2. We hope your child is keen and ready for some more great learning experiences in Term 2.

Attendance is important.  Everyday your child is absent is a day they miss learning opportunities. On days that your child is absent, please supply a written note explaining the absence or call the school advising of absences.  A special thank you to those parents who ensure their child is at school every day and those who make sure they advise the school of any absences.

This term will see Year 3 continuing the learning unit on narratives and then working on oral presentations of procedures in English. HASS continues to focus on the celebrations and commemorations. In Science we will explore the relationship between Earth and the sun. Maths will include number, shape, mapping, patterns, fractions, angles and money. This term will see first semester reports issued so students need to be available to complete assessments tasks.

We would appreciate any donations of boxes of tissues for use in the classroom.  As we head into flu season, there is a growing need for tissues for runny noses.

We look forward to another positive learning journey with your child this term. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any concerns relating to your child’s learning needs.

Teacher / Parent Contact

Please do not hesitate to speak to the teacher if you have any concerns, however we would appreciate if you could consider a few things.
If you need to speak to the teacher, please ensure you are at school on time and ready as soon as the door opens.  Coming in at 8.50 or 9.00 and expecting the teacher to have a meeting is not possible.
The best way to make appointments is to briefly see the teacher to confirm a time, email the teacher or ring the school.
Often the teacher is testing students or listening to them read before school, so we would appreciate your consideration if these things are occurring.
If for some reason you are late to school and arrive after the 9.00am bell, please do not expect to have a conversation with the teacher, because learning has commenced and the teacher will not stop to talk. 
Our email addresses are:
3A Louise Lawrence  –
3B  Mandy Ashe   -
3C  Jacqueline Fuchs - .
If your child is ill, please keep them at home. If you child is absent please either phone the absence line, send your child back to school with a written note or email the teacher.
Students should not be at school before 8:00am. If they do arrive before 8:00am they are required to sit on the pathway outside the administration/staffroom building until the 8am bell when they can go to the junior covered area.
If you move or change your contact details please ensure you update this information at the office.  It is extremely important that in an emergency we are able to contact you or a nominated person.
